LAS VEGAS – Mike Mixer, executive managing director of Colliers International – Las Vegas, announced that the company’s 20th annual Links for Life Charity Golf Tournament raised more than $70,000 for various children’s charities in Southern Nevada. Colliers International – Las Vegas singlehandedly donated $25,000 to support Links for Life’s charitable efforts in Las Vegas.
The 20th annual Links for Life Charity Golf Tournament was held on May 8 at the Las Vegas Country Club. Generous sponsors from all across Las Vegas gathered for a day of golf and camaraderie to support the charitable foundation’s goal of raising money for Nevada’s children’s charities.
“It is such a pleasure to host the Links for Life Charity Golf Tournament every year,” Mixer said. “We are extremely thrilled that the event has become one of the most engaging charitable events in Las Vegas, but most importantly, we are honored to be able to help so many great organizations in the Valley with the support of our staff and generous sponsors.”
Special thanks from Colliers International goes to the following companies for their generous contributions: Las Vegas Sands Corporation, Soil-Tech, Chicago Title, Panattoni Development Company, First American Title Company, Nevada Title Company, Worthe Hanson & Worthe, Alert ID, Majestic Realty and Fidelity National Title.
The Links for Life Foundation is corporately sponsored by Colliers International. Since its inception in 1995, Links for Life has contributed more than $2.2 million to local children’s charities including Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada, St. Baldrick’s Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Three Square Food Bank and Create a Change Now.
The annual charitable golf tournament has primarily funded the Links for Life Foundation. In 2010, Colliers International introduced additional events to allow more people to get involved and contribute to the company’s charitable giving efforts. In addition to the golf tournament, Links for Life hosts poker tournaments, wine and dine charity dinners and clothing and school supply drives.
Children’s charities and individuals in Southern Nevada that can put the Links for Life funds to good use may apply to be a beneficiary at www.LinksForLifeFoundation.org/Nevada.
